Flu vaccines are available at Magers Health and Wellness Center. I got mine last week. If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to make an appointment for your flu vaccine as soon as possible.
You can sign up through your MyHealth Portal for an appointment Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
There is no cost for students, MSU employees, household members of employees and retirees on MSU’s insurance.
Getting your flu vaccine before Dec. 1 qualifies you for a $10 per month discount on your health insurance premiums.
Reduce your premiums
In addition to getting your flu vaccine, getting your COVID-19 vaccination before Dec. 1 qualifies you for a $20 per month discount on your health insurance premiums.
I recently talked to a faculty member who said they had been vaccinated off-campus and did not submit their vaccination status to the university. I reminded them that they will not qualify for the $20 per month discount unless they notify Magers Health and Wellness Center of their vaccination.
You can do this by submitting a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card to Magers in person, by fax to 417-836-4133 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
White House plans
We are tracking recent developments on COVID-19 vaccination.
The White House announced plans to require vaccinations for many more individuals through the federal government’s various rule-making processes.
Our legal team is engaged with these processes. We will update our policies if, as and when rules come to fruition that require some or all of our campus community to get vaccinated.
The CDC recently recommended third dose Pfizer vaccinations for certain immunocompromised individuals. You can find more information on the Magers webpage.
If you believe you qualify for a third dose Pfizer vaccination, please schedule an appointment through your MyHealth Portal.
Oct. 4 Town Hall
Our next virtual town hall meeting is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. on Oct 4. Details can be found online. I encourage you to attend.
I will provide an enrollment update and an update on relevant COVID-19 data. I will also discuss the university’s temporary pandemic policies and updates to those policies.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
